Immediately I think Cubans, Haitians, Dominicans, illegals!  Will Mark Trail dip his nib into the inkwell of immigration??  Is Marlin scouting for Major League Baseball?? Does he get an extra bounty for promising southpaws??  So polite, he is, saying “excuse me please, Mark…”  The little ellipse at the end of that sentence, that little hesitation says it all- he’s up to NO GOOD.  Chores my arse…  Thanks Marlin, for letting us in on what you are up to, otherwise we’d all be wondering…


But dinner’s over and they didn’t even touch the mashed yams or whatever that bowl of orange glop represents… Shame.  Lots of nutrients in every bite!!
